    Alright. Lots to update. The first thing is my dual battery set up for under $400

    6851CA3C-FE5E-4B6E-B00C-33BFB396F7DE.jpg

    Parts list:

    Cole hersee 48530 12v smart battery isolator solenoid 200 amp. You can find one on eBay for around 80-90 and it’s usually Pre-wired

    About 50 feet of 2 gauge red wire

    5 feet of black (this is all depending on where you ground your battery)

    Terminals for the battery

    2 gauge eye hole terminals for the wiring to the battery and fuses (15)

    2x 200 amp fuses with housing

    16 gauge red and black wire for the volt reader and to ground the solenoid

    Volt meter

    Then whatever battery you decide to go with. If you’re doing in cab find a sealed battery.



    If you don’t have one a hydraulic crimper for the 2 gauge terminals


    Wiring diagram:

    01DFC042-C9FB-49EE-BF50-60333AB3F1D3.jpg

    It’s a very simple set up but works just fine. The smart isolator does not need a switch since it turns on and off automatically.

    Alright so the lights work. Having some issues with the lower control panel. Have to figure it out still. I was rushing a bit because of ATR

    While I was prepping these kids drove by and asked to take some photos so I figured why not I do this so others can enjoy it as much as I do

    Alright. Here’s day one of traveling to ATR

    The other photos are just of state boundaries: Indiana, Kentucky, and of course Tennessee.

    Day 2 came with a class from @SoutheastOverland about changing the inner tie rod which was very informative

    Day 2 we hit the trails. No idea what numbers but boy were they fun

    Day 3 was more trails. Went up to a radio tower and I believe it was abandoned before but the new one sits up there was well.

    Well i work at a gas and seal company and i found out they throw away bard ends they can no longer use so I was able to snag a few and use those for the seat spacer mod (https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/fs-aluminum-seat-spacers-for-seat-mod.563843/) so now i just need to grab some of the longer bolts and it will end up costing me $5

    I am also starting to save up some funds to buy Baja lights. I am going to start with my fog lights and order the circular ones for my bankrupt bumper. the rear already has baja lights and then i will begin to upgrade the rest of my light bars.

    I will also enlist the help of my brother @geekhouse23 and my buddy gian who also has a tacoma to take off my bumper and wire up the winch to the inside. I also need to fix the lower wiring on my switch panel. still isnt working. My next day im not working is october 20th so im hoping to get it done before then and winterize with them.

    Curious to see how the "DIY" spacers come out. Should be good.

    Can't go wrong with Baja Designs. They can be pricey but worth it. IMO of course

    :spy: :wave:

    Those are the "old" model. They have newer ones that are "brighter and better" hence the "sales". Making room for the new stock of "better" ones.

    Some type of jig to ensure straight cuts and a sawzall should work fine.

    I use WD-40. No issues.

    Also, cutting it close to Badlands for the winch haha. Shouldn't be a problem though. Hoping to Fluid film before that event though so shit isn't as dirty.

    Well this past weekend @geekhouse23 and I were helping to install a prinsu roofrack

    2B970521-EBC4-450E-B985-D0D5BE883492.jpg


    Also it was like our own little truck meet in the alley haha

    8D6FA762-E76E-46E2-82C5-D6EAA9EED08D.jpg

    I was also able to put a new wiring harness on @geekhouse23 heretic bar and relocate the ground for his Sasquatch lights

    Then while I was trying to fix the winch electrical issues in the winch control box I found out one of the terminals on the solenoid broke off
